Programme Title:
Description:
The Stevens Inquiry III Report says there was collusion between the RUC and Loyalists in the killings of Pat Finuance and Aidan Lambert, but stops short of saying it was institutionalism. Film report on Sir John Stevens (Metropolitan Commissioner) findings, hears he examined twenty six murder cases and he was obstructed by the Police and the army, most of his three thousand page report wasn't published, as he arrived at his Europa Hotel press conference, relatives of Loyalist murder victims confronted him, the widow of Gerard Slane was dragged away as she tried to enter. Inside Steven's criticised the RUC Special Branch and the army's Force Research Unit, he defined the collusion he found. The RUC could have prevented the murders of innocent people like Finucane and Lambert, he said, he also detailed the obstruction used against him and he pledged to bring the killers to justice. In response, Hugh Orde (PSNI Chief Cons.) who had been Steven's Deputy, emphasised the changes in Policing here now. Back at the Europa, collusion victims relatives spokesman, Michael Power expressed their outrage that Stevens himself didn't meet them and sent his detectives instead. Political reaction has been mixed. Report begins with Teresa Slane's comments, her husband, Gerard was killed in September 1988 in Belfast, then A. Maskey (SF) who was setup by Brian Nelson gives his response as a victim, he wants to see the chain of command exposed. Mark Durkan (SDLP) said the report was grave and alarming, he wants to know how high it went, what did Flanagan, King and Thatcher know. Alan McFarland (UUP) said the report was disturbing, then I. Paisley Jnr (DUP) sys the repoort was inconclusive on collusion issue, and institutionalised collusion didn't exist. Sir Des Rea (Policing Board) says they will learn from the report as they move forward.

Meanwhile the family of Adam Lambert, the protestant who was killed in 1987 in mistake for a Roman Catholic says the matter would be persued now that the report was with the DPP office. Brian Cowen (Irish Foreign Affairs Minister) called for a public inquiry into the Finucane murder, then from Dublin, Michael Finucane says the report vindicates the stance his family has taken since his father's murder. Collusion is now proven beyond any doubt he says, but he wants to know how far up the chain of command collusion went. He now wants a public inquiry to get all the facts. Files going to the DPP isn't good enough. UTV Insight tonight will cover the Collusion issue, a clip from the programme will show a UDA killer naming an RUC man he colluded with. Trevor Birney introduces the FRU personnel involved and it's work, with an FRU agent saying it was state sponsored murder and a William Stobie interview recalling what he told Special Branch. See Insight later for full details. In the studio, Chris Moore (Journalist) considers the pont that the coverup has been institutionalised, he reviews the last fourteen years of Stevens and examines the RUC CID response to Special Branch activities.

In other news, N. Dodds (North Belfast MP) says he won't be silenced by dissident republicans who tried to bomb his office. Film report with Dodds interview.

He doesn't want the gunmen prosecuted at the expense of the whole truth on the matter. A public inquiry should be sooner rather than later he says. Next item is from Conor McAuley who explores what happens next now that the Stevens Report has gone to the DPP office, in Belfast where the evidence is assessed, they decide on charges and against who. Brigadier Gordon Kerr is mentioned, but prosecutions can be dragged out to prevent a public inquiry as the Finucane's fear.
